The Long Wait Paid Off!!!

  • Excerpt: A Photographer/Professor introduced me to the fixed focal length lens. I have been interested in one for years but never took the plunge. After careful and lengthy research I finally decided to take the plunge and chose this lens. It combined the 50mm that I found would be most beneficial for my use with the ability of macro which was another lens I had been contemplating for years.<br /><br />This, so far, seems to be a very sturdy, easy to use lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

Great versatile macro

  • Excerpt: This has been a great Macro. It is fast, goes 1: 1 and also takes pretty good pictures as a solid 50mm prime. It might not be as nice optics as some of the pricier 50mm's, but if you need a macro, it is certainly suitable to use so you don't have to buy two.

  • Summary: Great little lens for the portrait type photosyou want to take. Also contains a macro lens great for taking close up photos, which I use for flowers and interesting things. Love to use this lens for special purposes. Best not to use for an all purpose lens.

  • Excerpt: This lens is so good that it makes me wonder why I have always saved up for an &quot;L&quot; series lens. It's as sharp as other reviewers claim, and lightweight to boot. Hooray for Canon.

nice lens for the Rebel T3i

  • Excerpt: I have the 100 mm macro, and it is very good if you can get far enough away from the subject of get it all in. The 50 mm gives me a wider FOV when I need it. I don't see a need for the &quot;extension&quot; that makes it a full 1: 1 macro, because I can use the 100 mm macro for that.<br />The image quality is very good for the 50 mm macro.<br />It all depends on your needs, this lens was good for me.

50 mm Macro Lens

cascade hiker, B&H Photo
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm really pleased I bought this macro lens. There are some less expensive macro options (filters, extensions) but a macro lens is necessary to provide adequate depth of field photos. The compact size and light weight are a nice bonus. The flexible plastic focus ring at first concerned me, but it appears to be well built. I found that manual focus mode worked best for me.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
